Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • We are a growing and increasingly diverse community.
  • There are many calls on our time and we struggle to manage or prioritize our use of time.
  • Community is a shared concern / value and some residents retain a sense of village identity.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • We are growing: numerically and in confidence of who we are as a church community.
  • We value welcome, tolerance and acceptance as a congregation.
  • We have a strong team approach in how we 'do' church.
